LAHORE - A 60-year-old lady doctor was found murdered at her house in the Islampura area on Monday evening, police said.

Dr Fahmida was lying dead with serious injuries in the head as the police reached the house at the Sabir Piya Road in the Islampura police precincts.

The only son of the deceased found his mother lying in the courtyard with multiple injuries as he returned home in the evening. He immediately contacted the police and disclosed the happening to the investigators.  Police investigators say they believe the housemaid of the doctor killed her and escaped from the crime scene. The son of the deceased told the police that they had expelled Tahir from their house after he exchanged harsh words with Dr Fahmida, a couple of days ago.
